After his arrest for drug trafficking on Wednesday morning in Padova, Italy, neo-professional Gianni Da Ros was suspended by both his Liquigas team and the Italian Cycling Federation.

"As far as we know, Da Ros's arrest is part of a big operation targeting drug trafficking in gyms," read a Liquigas team statement. "Team Liquigas as well as the Italian Cycling Federation have absolutely nothing to do with this."

If Da Ros's involvement is confirmed, his team will dismiss him and possibly sue him for damages.
